Highlighting and Contouring has been a major beauty trend over the past couple of years. It has always been around and has always been in the industry, but we have celebrity makeup artist and major beauty gurus that helped blow up this trend. When we think of highlight and contour we all automatically think Anastasia Beverly Hills! They have come out with major super affordable pallets of great makeup quality. I have to give it to them before they ventured into other categories of the beauty industry they were only known as the “Goddest of Brows”. I have not been able to get my hands on the latest pallet, but do have few to work with.
I love this pallet because it gives you that sun kiss summer glow all year long. I feel this one is more suited for someone who has been highlighting for a while. This pallet sparkles a lot . It maybe a little bit to chalky and glittery for a bigger , but over all I LOVE it. You can apply this on your body for a glow.
I personally love this pallet and would aim for a bigger to start using because the colors are so soft . I love how they just sit well on the skin without them being to much or to little.Remember it’s all up to you how much you pick up.
Ok so Sun Dipped is one of my favorites because it has more of a bronze contour effect. Great for a biggenir and offers a variety of different shades to create different looks. Remember like I mention above it all depends on how much you decide to pick up.
Finally the brush to get for all this wonderful highlight is Anastasia Beverly Hills A23 brush. This brush picks up the right amount and is small enough to reach creases and areas where you only want to apply the high light without feeling like you dipped your whole face .
Hello my lovelies !If you are a lover of beauty and routine like myself you have provably learned that you gravitate towards make up that works and does the necessary. That being effective coverage without overdoing it. Although I am a certified makeup artist and have worked in the beauty industry for plus years this post is dedicated to the girls who are oooh so natural! You know the everyday girl who does not necessaseraly have to have an over done face and is not an expert on makeup, but on what works best for her.
For years I avoid wearing foundation because I had perfect clear skin and felt that there was no need to wear foundation. I thought foundation would ruin my skin and cause me blemishes. To be honest I thought ALL foundation would do that to my skin. As I learned more about beauty products I discovered that there are two different types of makeup, stage make up and everyday make up. We can refer to stage make up as those super over the top covarage foundations that were created to wear on an acting stage. Stage makeup tends to be a bit more heavier due to lighting.This type of makeup is okay to wear during special occasions due to photographs ect. Later I learned that there is everyday makeup that will still give you full coverage or little coverage as you desire. Now a days makeup has been technolagically advanced that we find foundations and powders with spf, minerals, and antioxidents.
My current favorite makeup foundation and powder are my Too Faced cosmetics. Their Born This Way foundation is oil free and medium to full coverage. The trick to getting great coverage is to apply the formula from the center of the face and outward by blending. To build a full coverage effect is best to layer the foundation as needed. This foundation in infused with coconut water which replenishes the skins moisture levels. It is also infused with alpine rose to brighten the skins appearance and promote elasticity and hyaluronic acid to give the skin a more smoother and youthful appearance.
Cocoa Powder foundation is mixed with coco complex, antioxidant rich, and matte rose petal finish. I have learned that this powder can still be used by itself and give you a natural coverage. It is very weightless and gives a matte finish. Try focusing on the oily areas of the skin by dusting the foundation powder with a brush. Unlike other powders this formula absorbs oil, is non drying,defends agains free radicals, and deminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
